ART OF PERVASIVE DATA
This issue of LEA will seek cross disciplinary thinking on art in the age of pervasive data.
LEA is soliciting texts and artworks by artists,
researchers, and scholars
involved in the exploration of themes including:
The networked city
Hyperlocal data and the interpretation of proximity
Community use and generation of data
Novel means of navigating the data terrain.
Cities today are vast repositories of information, endlessly
Collecting and archiving data. The growth and proliferation of
databases and libraries that we access and update in the course of our
every day lives, and new techniques of accessing, visualising and using that
data, leads to new forms of representation and social interaction. The vast
scale of these databases brings us to a tipping point, entering an
era that is increasingly data-driven. This poses new challenges, such as
the demands of making sense of a million different data sources, issues
of provenance, interoperability, trust and accountability.
The potential for more innovative and novel interpretations of this
landscape by creative invention, social innovation and
scientific intervention is there to be explored.
The FutureEverything editorial group consists of Karen
Gaskill, Drew Hemment, Michelle Hirschhorn, Michelle Kasprzak, Julian Tait and KateTaylor.
